Statement on the Anniversary of 9/11

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) issued the following statement marking the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001:

“It has been 12 years since terrorists attacked our nation on September 11, 2001, killing thousands of our fellow Americans and forever changing the way we think about terrorism around the world and here at home.

“On this solemn anniversary, we remember the victims and their families. We honor the first responders who demonstrated extraordinary heroism in the face of chaos and despair. We recognize the military and law enforcement communities who continue working to keep us safe. And we recommit ourselves to the core democratic and humanitarian values that compelled us to stand together as a nation 12 years ago today and will sustain us long into the future.”
